This December will be one year since the White House released its final IT modernization strategy.

Federal CIO Suzette Kent mentioned in August that OMB and the agency lead teams have accomplished 40 of 52 tasks outlined in that plan. She expects the final 12 to be done before the end of the year.

The Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract, which is run by GSA, is mentioned 19 times throughout the strategy. There are three discrete tasks that focus on the impact OMB expects EIS to have on agencies.

EIS provides access to next-generation voice, video and data services on an enterprise level for all agencies.

In fact, GSA and OMB have been very clear in telling agencies that EIS should underpin nearly all IT modernization efforts.

In the IT modernization strategy, OMB says EIS provides access to managed security tools and services, helps small and micro agencies access new capabilities and consolidate acquisition of these telecommunications and security services.

This panel will explore how to enable IT modernization through network and cyber improvements.

  • Explore IT modernization strategies
  • Measuring success of IT modernization through cost savings, better cybersecurity and improved services to citizens
